Junior High Math Interactives

Junior High Math Interactives

This collection of interactive math lessons uses video presentations — there's footage of football for percentages, of zoo animal feeding for linear equations, and of an airplane landing for trigonometry — to link math to real life. It is part of the impressive Learn Alberta site, providing learning resources for Alberta's K-12 students. But, fortunately for those outside Alberta, many of the resources are available to guest users. The 23 activities on this particular page are among those and include lessons on integers, surface area and volume, circles, probability, and square roots, among others. Each segment includes a video with verbal and written commentary as well as a related print activity.
